About St. Gabriel’s and the Stained Glass Windows
Since 1893, through the generous contributions of members of the Adri-an G. Iselin family, seventeen magniﬁ-cent stained glass windows have been installed in St. Gabriel’s Church. There were a number of sources for the stained glass: The Tiffany Studios; Franz Mayer and Company; The Gorham Company; Heaton, Butler and Payne; and other unidentiﬁed ones, donated by and in memory of deceased members of the Adrian G. Iselin family.
To help support our preservation efforts, you may attend any of these events for a ticket price of $50 each, or attend all three for $125.
